Concept Design Because the mascot will be for Mozilla Firefox Indonesia, so it have to have Indonesian traditional art on it. This is one tough job because Indonesia consists of hundreds of races and cultures.
Concept Design What we want for the mascot is the culture which is: Well known among local and foreigners. Memorable. Flexible, so it can be applied on mascot.
Concept Design Firefox has fiery tail. We thought Batik Mega Mendung pattern looks like fire. So, we applied it on the mascot’s tail.
Concept Design Our first inspiration is Wayang Kulit, traditional puppet from Java.
Concept Design But, After working on few rough sketches, it’s very hard to transform the puppet into adorable Firefox mascot.
Concept Design After the first dead end, our next inspiration was Tari Kecak Dancer from Bali.
Concept Design Turns out, The mascot in Kecak Dancer costume looks more adorable.
Sketch After discussion with Viking Karwur, we decided that we will use the sitting pose.
Inking The whole process was done by Poy. The sketching process done directly with Adobe Photoshop.
Coloring Firefox mascot should have bright colors. We chose to use orange to yellow color scheme. The coloring process was done with Adobe Il ustrator.
Coloring After it finish, we created naked mascot for template. This template will make it easier and faster to work on the future project.
